An editorial by Mel Rothenburger.
WE HUMANS ARE VERY CREATIVE in coming up with new ways to wage war on the other species that inhabit planet Earth alongside us.
There’s an event in Williams Lake called a “wolf whacking contest” that illustrates the point.
Fifty-four environmental protection groups under the banner of the Wildlife Protection Coalition are demanding that the Province pass legislation to ban contests that reward the killing of wildlife. The Williams Lake contest, sponsored by a gun store called Chilcotin Guns, isn’t the only one aimed at predators.
